york city mayor rudy giuliani knocking it off right now in preparation for mitt romney's speech. so, of course, with just four days until election day, the romney campaign is looking to fire up its base as well as courting independents. but as "the wall street journal" recently suggested evangelical christians could be the secret voting bloc that puts romney over the top. this from a column by deputy editorial page editor, dan henneger. we welcome century strategy ceo ralph reid, founder and chairman of the faith and freedom coalition. good evening, ralph. ralph, as i understand it, you believe a resurgent evangelical vote can take over ohio, pennsylvania, and wisconsin, three massively important states. >> well, and i would also, larry, add iowa to that mix. and i think it's a big reason why north carolina, which obama carried four years ago, as you know, has moved off the table. i think it's a big reason why the safe betting today in both parties is that florida is moving away from obama. the evangelical vote is 44% of the vote in north carolina. that state is now gone. he was the
hitters taking the stage behind me, rudy giuliani was out here earlier, bob mcdonnell, governor of virginia. kid rock kicked off this event earlier. not sure if we will see a gop version of "we are the world" but there is representation from just about every battleground state and the reason why is because if the romney campaign can't win ohio, they've got to cobble together a collection of other states to make the math work and that is basically the agenda for the next three days. >> jessica, what are you hearing from the obama campaign about how they feel about ohio? >> reporter: well, you constantly hear about the poll numbers, the early vote. there are so many numbers being thrown out by this campaign, sometimes you feel like you're at the betting track. but the bottom line is, it's a confidence game by both sides and they do point out that yes, the president is consistently up even if it's within the margin of error, consistently up in every ohio poll you look at. and that they have the advantage with the ground game. and also, as we pointed out before with the auto bailout
